Hansbrough out for Kentucky game

Posted November 17, 2008

— North Carolina center Tyler Hansbrough still has not recovered from a stress reaction in his right shin and will not play Tuesday against Kentucky, UNC coach Roy Williams said Monday.

The Tar Heels play Kentucky at 9 p.m. in the Smith Center.

"There's not really any change, and he will not play," Williams said.

Williams said he anticipated going with the same starting lineup from Saturday, when UNC beat Penn in its opening game. Freshman Tyler Zeller started at center with Hansbrough out.

Williams said he didn't know yet if Hansbrough would be ready to play Friday at UC-Santa Barbara.

Williams spent much of his news conference Monday expressing concern about Carolina’s rebounding. Hansbrough led the ACC last year in rebounding at 10.2 rebounds per game.

The Tar Heels outrebounded Penn 42-32, led by freshman Ed Davis’ 14 rebounds. Zeller had only two.

“I told Big Z, ‘Hey, you’ve got to get more than two rebounds,’” Williams said.
On another injury note, Williams said Marcus Ginyard is “probably a little behind schedule.” Ginyard had surgery Oct. 8 for a stress fracture in his left foot and was expected to miss eight weeks. However, Williams said, “He’s completely out of the boot now and so I think he’ll start improving rapidly.”

    I just wanted to apologize for offending so many people. If you look at my profile picture you will see Why I love talking to you guys.

    THV - I agree. The Heels will win by at least 20. TyZell is the real deal. If they keep him two years, they'll be lucky. TyLaw needs to manage the team a little better. Once he gets in a groove, the offense will flow nicely.

    As always, Mad Buc, I'll just ignore you and eventually you'll go away. I hope you've had fun.

    I'm excited about the game tonight. The Heels will win and the freshmen will once again showcase their skills. Our veterans will light it up tonight also.

    GO HEELS!!

    And so, we come to the end of another workday (I'm leaving early). I've accomplished less than I should have. And OBD agrees that OBD is right---an affirmation from OBD that OBD humbly appreciates. OBD also agrees that OBD is not OBD, not to mention that OBD just wants everyone else to also accept the fact that he is not OBD. And also, OBD has no respect for anyone that can't stand the likes of OBD.

    A typical day.

    Obviously this new site allows duplicate screen names.

    How is that even possible? We would have two different passwords. One of us would fail to login,... View More

    He's done several different things. For me, he logged in as himself and then changed his screen name to heelsfan19. Apparently you can have duplicate screen names. So it was his rank, # of posts, date joined, etc., but it said heelsfan19. He has since gone in and changed it back. For billygoat, he took an alias he already had and changed that one to billygoat. Again, it let him create a duplicate screen name. I knew it wasn't billygoat because the rank and number of posts were wrong. He has since gone in and changed that to theheelsfan19. You can see samples on the forum I created to warn other posters. I copied some of the posts when he was using billygoat's name.

    THV - I agree. Very good idea.

    Well since we will never resolve this situation, I think it is best if we just ignore each other... View More

    Your audacity is surpassed only by your idiocy. Nice 'hobby' you practice, OBD. You're the envy of every well-adjusted human being.

    Are the imposters using SIMILAR screen names, but not identical?
